    I worked at Ryanair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's quite easy to get hired considering it's aviation

    Cons

    November 2016

    -Expensive Training course which is clearly a legalized fraud (£2300 in total, £300 deducted from your salary every month).

    -No accommodation, Meals, transportation provided during the training course

    -No accommodation provided in the initial base where you are sent after passing the course, not even for the first days

    -Cost of the Uniform deducted from your wage every month, (-£30 per month, for a total of 12 months)

    -You get paid only when you are flying, during boarding, disembarking, or if there's any delay on the ground you don't earn a single penny.

    -No meals provided to the crew, not even in the longest flights (e.g. 4 hours 10 minutes to go, 4 hours 40 minutes to come back). All the cabin crew needs to bring their own food and water from home.

    -In every flights there's an Average Spend target to reach (e.g. £2,50 per passenger on a total of 185 passengers), the cabin manager must push the crew to sell as much as possible in order to achieve the target. A crew member who is not very good at selling may be called to Dublin to attend a meeting in which he/she get intimidated in order to push him to sell more.
